Afterwards, the author realizes the integral conformation of his literary works, drawing up a list for a total of 12 novels concerning the complete work of the "King of Light",[51] not counting his first work: "The Secret of the Orchard" which will be included among the novels surrounding the plot. Federico thus takes over his literary works, having his previous works withdrawn from the market, so that there is a unique work for each volume. The first work that improves is his poetic collection entitled: "Scintille di Vita la Forza della Natura" which greatly improves the editing and information inside it. He also writes a dedication and a poem for her missing childhood friend.

In 2023, the author completed a new definitive edition of the novel "Il Re della Luce l'Ordine degli Dèi Oscuri," perfecting its plot, style, and details. Subsequently, he translated the novel and published a new definitive edition in English, titled "The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods."

Amid various studies, the author decided to explore other literary genres, creating several poems, including his first lyric: "Vernazza infinita," a poem in unrhymed hendecasyllables in honor of Giacomo Leopardi's "L'infinito".

Subsequently, Federico ventured into another genre outside of fantasy, publishing his first science fiction story titled "Il Ragazzo Digitale." This work was included in a saga titled "Il Potere digitale," of which it is the first book.

Following this, the author revisited the book "Il Re della Luce l'Ordine degli Dèi Oscuri" and its English version "The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods" to incorporate further modifications, especially the introduction of a new language he invented, called the Elvanar language.

The Secret of the Orchard (Novel)

The secret of the Orchard cover

The Secret of Orchard[52] is Federico's first book that he began towards the last years of high school. The book is inspired by the town of Vernazza, where both the plot and part of the characters derive from a real situation and an imaginary part. The language of the novel is highly sought after and archaic, like the plot which is very mysterious and veiled in many circumstances.

The environments such as some characters and situations were invented by Federico to put the book in a Fantasy key. The author's style is also presented as a fairy tale mixed in many respects by a classic and always dynamic Fantasy. The book tells the worldly lives of peasants, in particular of two characters who turn out to be the protagonists, namely: "Corcelsio" and "Virtuoso".

They live in a village without a name and never specified in the novel, which turns out to be an island in small respects. The life of those two characters will intertwine with other people, wrapped together by a situation that began 100 years before the plot, during the monarchical period, mysteriously disappeared out of thin air. The country in question will therefore suffer the adversity of an element that is of an evil nature that upsets the future of the fate of all people within the country.

The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods (Novel)

The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods cover

The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods[53] is the second novel by Federico Carro,[54] initially idealized with another title just before concluding his first novel: "Il Segreto del Verziere[55]". The novel is the first volume of the fantasy trilogy called: “The King of Light[56] which tells the story of Fedrick, a crusader who is thrown into a world parallel to his original world.

The book is written in the same aulic style as the author's first novel, but differs from the use of words, as it turns out to be a less sought-after but more dynamic language than the first novel, where the plot takes place slowly here instead. The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods[57] plays a lot on the dynamism of events, it is rich in plot and details. The story takes place during the end of the first crusade, where a crusader named Fedrick intrigued by a very particular light, ventures inside the Holy Sepulcher, where inside he finds a green stone that, taking it for himself, falls from his hand and it breaks.

From this stone comes an evil being that stuns him and sends him to another world other than his, there he discovers that the battle that was about to take place disappears completely, leaving room for a desert of sand with nothing around him. Deciding to continue towards an unknown street, he embarks on a long adventure in search of Isabel, a girl he met in Turin, to whom, however, this city will result in this parallel world, the capital of a forbidden and evil empire.

Together with other cities such as: "Lyon" and "Prague", Fedrick discovers that these cities are the capitals of a world divided by beings who call themselves: "Dark Gods". It will be up to Fedrick and his friends Jehrais and Radamantio to try to permanently destroy these evil ones from the world.

The King of Light the Leviathan Army (Novel)

The King of Light the Leviathan Army[58] resumes Fedrick's adventures after the first novel of the saga called: "The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods[59]". After a difficult and arduous fight against Dar Queen, the absolute leader of the order of the dark gods, Fedrick is thrown off to another planet.

Here Fedrick is saved by a girl of his own age named: "Luce", to whom after a short distance in the sky, Fedrick comes out of the place where he was resting to notice in the sky the first Leviathan created by Dar Queen, where the evil one merged together thus starting with the planet where Fedrick stopped before and where his friends and Isabel are.

Determined to somehow pursue the evil one, Fedrick discovers that the planet he is on is a planet that portrays the near future of the people present, where the girl who saves him is none other than Fedrick's daughter. With the passage of Dar Queen the Master of Chaos the villain of the planet awakens from the sleep that threatens the planet with the evil of him.

It will therefore be up to Fedrick and Luce to try to defeat the evil and find a way to find Dar Queen and defeat him to restore peace to the whole universe. The book uses the usual style of the author, trying to develop the action more than the description of the places and characters, since the plot is always at the center of these works.

The King of Light the Rise of Destiny (Novel)

The King of Light the Rise of Destiny cover

The King of Light the Rise of Destiny is the latest book of the saga: "The King of Light",[60] which concludes Fedrick's story to try to reach Isabel and try to defeat the powerful and evil Dar Queen. After the book: "The King of Light the Leviathan Army[61]" Fedrick and Luce are divided by a powerful force called: "The king of Light" where Fedrick finds himself immersed in elemental planets where he learns powerful magical techniques that allow him to go forward in plot.

After the arrival of Syslomaour who takes part of the Leviathan Army to himself, the latter creates a portal where he sends Fedrick to another galaxy. Inside he finds two other companions who help him continue in the plot, where at the end before the final battle against his arch opponent, Fedrick will have to face the King of Light who will test him before continuing to the great war between the good and evil.

The book is more dynamic and more abstract than its predecessors, due to increasingly surreal and imaginative events, the style therefore always remains sophisticated, but it is slightly easier to read due to the increasingly complex and articulated plot.

Scintille di Vita la Forza della Natura (Poems collection)

Scintille di Vita la Forza della Natura cover

Scintille di Vita la Forza della Natura cover

Scintille di Vita la Forza della Natura[62] is a collection of poems created by Federico by grouping all the poems made over the years. His first poem is titled: " Sussulto di vita" created simply as an inspiration in observing the sea of Vernazza.

The author discovered in a simple and vital way that he had a gift, namely that of writing and composing his own poems which he later put together, thus generating a poetic logic among all the poems.

From that sum of poems that were originally inspired simply from the radiant nature of Vernazza, the author thus built a book, a collection of poems that speaks precisely of nature, from its genesis to how it can end and regenerate itself, within a cycle perennial.

The words are highly sought after and even ancient that no longer exist in the current Italian language. The physiognomy of the poems are simple and short, which must be read breathlessly. However, these poems allude to many meanings, have a lot of symbology and must be interpreted according to the imagination.

The Knight of Light the Radamantio story (Novel)

The Knight of Light the Radamantio story cover

The Knight of Light the Radamantio story[63] is the first volume of the spin-off trilogy of: “The king of light” entitled: “The knight of light”.[64] This book tells the adventures of one of Fedrick's friends and allied fighters, namely: " Radamantio".

This trilogy was born from the need to make the reader understand the various plots that are intertwined with other stories, in order to understand the facts, events and mysterious characters that could not be revealed in the trilogy of the King of Light. This novel reveals the story about the characters surrounding the figure of Radamantio, tells about his family and his birthplace before the rise of the order of the dark gods that changed the path of the world.

It is revealed how Emperor Kinsguard got carried away by evil, how Radamantio's mother fought to try to save her children, and how Radamantio and Biancofiore were trapped by their own father. Then with the arrival of Fedrick to go away from his island, heading to face his solemn enemy: "Dar King" the right arm of Dar Queen and absolute master of the whole East who resides in Prague.

Subsequently he meets the one who will make him the cover of his first script in English, in which he, working by hand on his projects, is none other than the same author of the covers of Tim Burton's screenplays.

The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods (Script)

The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods screenplay

The King of Light the Order of the Dark Gods screenplay

The screenplay: "The king of light the order of the dark gods" is born from the author's need to put his second novel in a film version. The screenplay is therefore a re-adaptation of the novel suitable to be played in a Fantasy film that tells the stories of Fedrick.

The beginning of the screenplay starts differently than the novel, and then reconnects to the novel when the crusader is inside the settlements, the night before the war that was about to look at dawn. Certain aspects of the script have been changed and certain parts cut. For example, in the script the part in which Salazhar appears in the novel is not present in the script, as well as many parts present when Fedrick arrives in Gaza. This obviously is to keep the work within a certain duration of the hypothetical making of the film.

The Secret of the Orchard (Script)

The Secret of the Orchard screenplay

The Secret of the Orchard screenplay

Federico's second screenplay is made using the author's first novel in a cinematic key, so called: "The Secret of the Orchard". The script is emphasized with more action and adventure, where the author creates new connected events between people within the country.

Thus new mysteries are conceived which are solved, emphasizing certain aspects and characters that come out in the light of the sun. While the original book is put under a fairytale key, the screenplay makes the characters more concrete, revealing their true nature which is hidden in the book.

There are therefore new scenes never seen in the book, new characters and other settings hidden by the veil that the book carries. The book has many flashbacks of the various characters, the author interpreted this factor in the script, creating ten flashbacks, thus drawing inspiration from Boccaccio's Decameron.

Among the author's favorite hobbies are playing video games and reading books, especially fantasy, yellow, and historical. From this thought, Federico decides to create a second website that could contain at least one of the two factors. Initially he decides to create a blog only for video games, but later the author also integrates the aspect of books, thus creating his second blog: "The Gamer Novelist", a site for those who are lovers of books and video games.

This project is linked to its main project: "The King of Light", by the fact that the site in question carries out reviews on any book; consequently, it is linked to its primary project for the realization of reviews on multiple nuances, which are both books and video games.

After the disappearance of several inhabitants of Vernazza, Federico feels within himself the desire to create a page that can remember, talk about, and preserve everything related to Vernazza's atmosphere.

Literary works

Cinematographic works

Federico has written several scripts taken directly from his novels. These projects are works to which the author aims to launch them as films in the cinema, also having a financial plan made together with Jack Binder a Hollywood producer.

Poetry collections

Scintille di Vita la Forza della Natura was born as a primary work of bringing together all the poems drawn by the author. This poetic collection contains a journey to which the poems are divided, a journey from the beginning of time, up to a distant or perhaps even near future. The book is divided into three chapters to better explain the story composed entirely of 100 poems, a story therefore full of meaning, allegories and very symbolic.

Chapter I The genesis of the creature

Chapter II The shadow of nature

Chapter III The infinite and his flowering

Other works

  • Marea Melodica (2024)

Ancestry

Federico Carro's family seal was discovered near Vernazza.

Federico Carro's family seal was discovered near Vernazza.

According to some in-depth research by the author, Federico manages to create a very accurate family tree, creating his own lineage that extends back to his ancestors dating back to the time of the French Revolution. According to some sources found in the municipal archives, his lineage derives directly from the marriage of two people, dating back to 1700, which would therefore have begun the "Carro" lineage.

Furthermore, in the archives, the author finds the seal of "Caro", which therefore concerns a direct derivation of his surname, something ascertained, among other things, from a finding of this surname in the registers in the parish of Corniglia, where it is written that in 1500 some Caro derived from Emilia Romagna had reached Vernazza. According to the author's hypothesis, by observing the seal, not only could he descend from Annibale Caro, known for having translated Virgil's Aeneid, but Caro would derive directly from the Latin: "Carus" which could also connect him to a Roman emperor, Marcus Aurelius Carus.

Federico Carro's special award from family and friends for his work on the Vernazza Fandom Wiki.

In 2023, Federico receives a special award from relatives and friends for his deeds on the Vernazza Fandom Wiki, receiving two historical paintings regarding his descent from the Caro (paternal side) and the Basso (maternal side).

Subsequently, the author decides to take a DNA test to obtain more information regarding his ancestry. According to a professional test of his genetic code, the author descends from the O'Neills, an Irish royal and noble dynasty of Gaelic origin, who throughout history have held prestigious titles and positions in Ireland and elsewhere. More precisely, DNA was found deriving from: "Niall of the Nine Hostages", a high king of Ireland who lived in the first half of the 5th century.

According to the test, it was also discovered that the author's lineage descends from Spain, Portugal, and France, the same derivations of the O'Neill dynasty that, at the beginning of the 18th century, began to descend in those areas. This fact is strengthened by the fact that Federico actually has relatives in France, just as his surname has Spanish origins.

The Uí Néill ruled to various degrees as kings of Ireland from the 7th to the 11th century C.E. In the highly patriarchal society of medieval Ireland, their status allowed them to have outsized numbers of children and spread their paternal lineage each generation. In fact, researchers have estimated that between 2 and 3 million men with roots in north-west Ireland are paternal-line descendants of Niall.

Trivia

  • Federico Carro in 2012 during his Michael Jackson concert

    Federico Carro in 2012 during his Michael Jackson concert

    Federico Carro in 2012 following the flood in October 2011 in Vernazza, he was the first and only one to have organized a show in his country in the summer of 2012. The artist organized a fund offer for the damage suffered Vernazza, structuring a Michael Jackson show, installing a stage on a restaurant, to which the owner of the restaurant granted him permission for the show. During the performance, the artist stayed for an hour dancing in front of his villagers, managing to introduce the famous white tarp with the enlarged image of Michael Jackson at the beginning of the show. Despite the fact that the entire show, including lights, stage, special effects and sound instruments were paid for by himself, Federico managed to obtain a donation of over a thousand euros for a single evening, paid that same evening as a gift for his Vernazza's hometown.

    When Frozen was released in 2013, Federico Carro refused to see it because he didn't seem interested in the film at all, but when in 2015 he saw some pieces of the film on television, the work slowly aroused the artist's interest. What struck him deeply in the film was when Hans was about to kiss Anna, where he himself, believing he was going to finish the film with a simple kiss, instead triggered a reverse reaction. Not only did Hans not kiss Anna, but Federico took an interest in the film. From that day on he saw the whole film again, where he kidnapped one of the most famous songs of the film: "Let it go". That song sparked in Federico the desire to "let it go", referring to himself in the musical field. The author was initially very hesitant and averse at the time of releasing his first album: "Come un lampo", the song Let it go gave him the push and the charge to launch his first songs and start a new one adventure in the musical field and later in the literary one. Following with the release of Frozen II in 2019, Federico listened to the song: "Show yourself" which immediately kidnapped him along with the song: "Into the Uknnown". The latter in listening to her felt as if something had to happen, like an event that could change the course of his life and his entire existence. After a few months from this the world fell prey to Covid-19, where after this event the song: "Show yourself" gave Federico the energy to launch his second most ambitious project, namely "Fedrick Fantasy Kingdom", thus showing itself himself, maturing and improving with the experience in creating new videos, putting this knowledge in his subsequent works. From these events, therefore, the author's favorite Disney film remains Frozen, which is why Federico always includes Elsa in his works related to the project: "Fedrick Fantasy Kingdom" to honor these events.
